If you’re commuting in a car or a bus, look for interesting license plates or unusual scenery.
If you’re commuting on a train, look around and see if can find someone wearing something unusual or reading a book with a quirky title etc..
This is actually a MINDFULNESS TOOL. It keeps you fully in the present – which is where the most happiness is to be found.
Paulo Cuelho says: “You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
When you play a grown up’s game of “I Spy” – and get curious about finding cool and interesting things in your surroundings – you are fully awake and mindful – and can experience far more joy in your day.
See if you can get the list to 100!
